MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) - As Democrats prepare for their last presidential debate before primary voting, President Donald Trump is eager to provide political counter-programming in a nearby battleground state.

Pres. Trump heads to Wisconsin on Tuesday night to rally supporters even as the Democrats take the debate stage in Iowa, which holds its kickoff caucuses in less than three weeks.

Winning back Wisconsin is a key part of the Democrats' 2020 strategy. It's one of the reasons the party chose Milwaukee to host its national convention in July.

Pres. Trump won the state by fewer than 23,000 votes in 2016.

The rally begins at 7 p.m. (CST)
